SANS Webcast: Immunizing Modern Application Frameworks

The compiled code at the heart of all systems has vulnerabilities that can quickly metastasize through all layers of an environment. Statistically, the largest class of vulnerabilities (40% by a count of CVEs) heavily infect open-source code and web-app frameworks. RunSafe’s Alkemist reduces the risk of exploitation in these software form factors, without developer or operator friction. In this discussion, we’ll show participants how to deploy open source code pre-hardened from this dangerous class of attacks.
